MP3: The Hard Way (THW)

Fly Union shot this video while visiting Los Angeles.  The Columbus trio is somewhat mum about where their hardwork is leading but I have trouble believing that linking with Casey Veggies , TDE and Dom Kennedy while in Los Angeles is counterproductive.  Buy “the Hard Way” on I-Tunes here.

MP3: Nana B – Crazy Baby (Produced By Jay Swifa of Fly Union)

MP3: Nana B- Crazybaby Prod. By Jay Swifa (of_Fly.Union)

Nana B sings a song I think most people in Columbus can relate with . You’ve been hanging out with someone for 8 months. You need to get rid of them. But they don’t take the hint. I think this especially works for Spring. You started dating someone in the winter cause that’s a natural thing to do. The nice weather hits about the same time you realize they are insane. You just need them to get the away from you.

Jay Swifa of Fly Union provides smooth production for “Crazy Baby” so the break-up doesn’t seem super harsh. Real talk always goes better with melody.

2012 SXSW Recap: Real Rap Vacation

Tired as fuck, I walked out of the “Killer Mike R.A.P. Music Showcase” Wednesday. After getting outside, I wondered why DJ Detox was bullshitting and not outside.  I walked back inside and he was making small talk with the GZA.

When I found the GZA and Detox, a small crowd had also found the GZA.

Fly Union Early 2012 Tour Dates

MP3: Long run

Fly Union is currently on tour. They are one of Columbus’ greatest music exports. Please do your self a check then out if they are in your town. Or follow them around like a fanatic so I can watch their twitter and giggle about them getting stalked by a random creep.

MP3: Lolah Brown- “Here I Am” (Produced by Fly Union)

MP3: Here I am

Cleveland R+B singer Lolah Brown becomes one of the rare human beings to get an original Fly Union produced beat without FlydotU flowing on it.
Beautiful song.

Favorite Albums of 2011: Wes Flexner

30.Mobb Deep-Black Cocaine

MP3: Mobb Deep- Conquer

I like Houston rap as much as the next guy. But sometimes a man enjoys Henroc out of a stryofoam cup instead of lean and sprite. Prodigy is home, and he is voting for Ron Paul like some sort of Q-Boro Vince Gallo. While I am not voting for Ron Paul this EP knocks.
